Johnson & Johnson To Stop Selling Talc-based Baby Powder In North America

(RTTNews) - Johnson & Johnson will stop selling its talc-based Johnson's Baby Powder in the United States and Canada, as demand fell amid mounting consumers lawsuits that claimed the talc products caused cancer.

The move comes after years of litigation where the company has been ordered to pay billions of dollars in compensation.

But, the company has consistently defended the safety of its talc products.

The healthcare giant said it will wind down the commercialization of talc-based baby powder, which represents about 0.5% of the total U.S. Consumer Health business, in the U.S. and Canada in the coming months. But retailers will continue to sell existing inventory.

The company added that the move is part of a reassessment of its consumer products prompted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
